Long Description:
About the depot: "The narrow gauge San Joaquin & Sierra Nevada Railroad ran from Brack’s Landing west of Lodi and reached Valley Springs on April 25, 1885. The line was soon purchased by the Southern Pacific, went standard gauge in 1904 and, while regular passenger service ended in 1932, freight was still being hauled into 1983. While no trains or tracks remain, the 123-year-old Valley Springs depot is the only original station of the SJ&SNRR still standing." (visit link)
